LOOK FOR BILT-WELL LABEL 



Oui 



JR doors are guaranteed to be of good material 
and workmanship, free from defects which render 
them unserviceable or unfit for the use for which they 
are intended. (Natural variations in the color or texture 
of the wood are not to be considered as defects.) 

Doors must be accorded reasonable treatment by the 
purchaser. Doors must not be stored in damp warehouses 
or placed in moist or freshly plastered buildings, or subjected 
to abnormal heat, dryness or humidity. The structural strength 
of the door must not be impaired in the fitting of the door 
or the application of hardware. We do not assume 
responsibility for doors which become defective from 
these causes. Top and bottom edges of all doors 
must be thoroughly painted or varnished to 
prevent undue absorption of moisture. 

A warp or twist not to exceed W 
shall not be considered a defect. 

Doors must be inspected upon arrival 
and all claims or complaints must be 
filed before painter's finish is applied. 

We agree to repair or replace in the white, 
without charge, any door found to be defective 
within the meaning of this guarantee. 

Doors must not be repaired or replaced 
without first obtaining our consent.

The fine quality of these doors is unusual in such 
moderately priced designs. The heavy (%") raised 
panels . . . the giant (j^|") dowels . . . the Ponderosa 
Pine material make these doors an outstanding value. 
Any one of these doors will go well with the Interior 
6 panel Colonial Door.

These doors are very appropriate for the most care- 
fully planned doorways. Their fine quality of ma- 
terials and excellent workmanship are comparable to 
the finest pieces of furniture. The short glass space is a 
feature often preferred because of the privacy it affords. 
Ponderosa Pine is the wood; the glass is double- 
strength. It has a raised panel of %j" thickness.

As the name implies, Bilt-Well Doors are truly built 
well. Perhaps, the most important contribution to the 
fine quality of Bilt-Well Doors is the scientific methods 
coupled with the latest modern manufacturing facili- 
ties. For example, Bilt-Well Doors are assembled with 
giant {%,") spiral-glue-cell dowels held fast with a 
highly water-resistant glue after being clamped under 
pressure. 15

Bilt-Well Doors are manufactured of clear Ponderosa 
Pine, properly kiln-dried, and are in every respect a 
high-grade product. The raised panels are %" thick.

First, the stiles are bored for dowels. This machine auto- 
matically takes the stile, bores it, and releases it. See 
arrow pointing to stile turned out after boring. 



Then the stiles are placed on a carrier, and one by on 
they pass through this moulder, which cuts the stickin 
on one edge and surfaces the other edge — all in or 
operation. 



THE CREATION OF A 
BELT-WELL DOOR 



There are a lot of operations that go into 
making the Bilt-Well Door, and this is one 
of the reasons why they have proved to be 
the outstanding door over a long period of 
years. We would like to acquaint you with 
the many operations required in making 
something that appears to be as simple as 
a door. Yet the extreme care and scientific 
handling given the Bilt-Well Door can not 
in any way be shown in photographs or 
adequately described by words. The photo- 
graphs on these pages show briefly how 
Bilt-Well Doors are made without confusing 
you with a lot of technical terms.

The rails are then run through the "three-in-one" ma- 
chine which bores, inserts the glue, and drives the 
dowels — all in successive operations. 




> 



In the meantime other craftsmen are preparing the 
rails— the ends are coped to fit over the sticking on 
the stiles, after which they are bored for the dowels. 
The lumber passes through the machine automati- 
cally as each piece is carried by a conveyor. 




The component parts are now ready to be assembled, 
and here you see the power automatic clamp being 
used. The clamp is being closed and the dowels are 
being forced into the stiles.

Now the door is sanded. Here it is coming out, all pol- 
ished and smooth. Let's see what was done: Four grades 
of sandpaper were used — No. 2-36E, No. T/2-40E, No. 
V2-60E, No. 2/0— 100E. This machine has all four kinds 
of paper and when the door is finished, believe me, it's 
smooth! Each door is individually inspected after sanding.

These authentic reproductions of Colonial Door De- 
signs radiate a pleasing note of charm and dignity. 
They have the correct proportions that reflect good 
taste and their simplicity is an adjunct of genuine 
beauty. Bilt-Well Doors are produced of Ponderosa 
Pine Lumber that is properly kiln-dried.

These attractive doors are adaptable to a modern 
exterior and as such they make a very impressive en- 
trance. Frequently used in public buildings, as well as 
apartments, and residences. Their construction is un- 
usually sturdy, and long, satisfactory service is insured 
by extreme care in manufacture. 

Laminated construction consisting of a "Core", Cross 
Banding, and Face Veneers make up the completed 



door. All these component parts are properly kiln- 
dried; and when combined with a highly water- 
resistant glue, the results are a solid mass.

Extra strength is derived from engaging 
the moulded edges of the rail and the 
stile. The additional rigidity and preven- 
tion from twisting are the prime objectives. 



CORNER: The great strength of Bilt-Well 
Doors is revealed in this photograph. The 
Giant (5/8") Dowels have a firm grip on 
the stiles and on the rail, to which add the 
adhesion of water-resistant glue. 



A Door can be no better than its panels. 
Bilt-Well is one of the few door manu- 
facturers to adopt 9/16" raised panels. 
The moulding shown is the standard ovolo 
sticking used throughout Bilt-Well Doors. 



Spiral-glue-cell Dowels . . . The glue on a A 
plain, round dowel is forced from the sur- 
face because it has no place to lodge; 
whereas, in the case of the Bilt-Well Dowel 
the glue remains in the spiral glue cells 
when inserted into the boring.

Nothing about the Small Home is more interesting than its 
_ doorway—and it need not be elaborate to be beautiful. Beauty 

throughout all Bilt-Well Entrances is contributed by the fluting of 

the pilasters beneath the cap and the correctly proportioned

Many Possible Variations . . . 

Unusual Flexibility 

■ 

With these new attractive designs the 
opportunity is provided for greatly in- 
creasing sales volume. 

They are scaled down proportionately 
from our other line of Bilt-Well En- 
trances to ideally fit the smaller house, 
for which there is a vast market open 
for those who push sales of these new 
Entrances. These four new entrances have 
one standard base, and the four entrance 
heads are interchangeable. From these, 
innumerable variations are possible by 
interchanging heads, doors, and revers- 
ing pilasters. All this can be done from 
a stock of one kind of standardized base 
and the four entrance head designs. 

Bilt-Well Entrances are manufactured 
of carefully selected Ponderosa Pine and 
are chemically treated with Permatol "A" 
to resist decay caused by fungus growth. 
They consist of heads put together, re- 
versible pilasters, caps, bases and cas- 
ings, K. D., semi-assembled. The En- 
trance does not include jambs and sill 
unless ordered. The sill, when furnished, 
is Oak to insure long-wearing qualities. 

These Entrances are standardized for 
a 3'-0" x 7'-0" door and are adjustable 
down to a 2'-8" x 6 / -8' / door by adding 
a two-inch strip on the casing.

ASSEMBLING THE BILT-WELL 
ENTRANCE IS EASY 



1 . This entrance is machined for a 3'-0" x 7'-0" door. Check 
fhe opening in the frame with the door size before setting 
up jamb, etc. Check sill-lug which should be 1%" from 
face of jamb after assembly. After the door jambs and sill 
are installed, place the head casing on the head jamb 
allowing a l / 2 " reveal. Center the head casing to leave the 
same extension beyond the side jambs at each end. See 
illustration No. 1 . 

2. Place the two side casings (7'-83/ 16 " x 3 1 Vi 6 " x iVW') 
over the side jambs allowing a l/ 2 " reveal at the sides. See 
illustration No. 2. Cut a bevel-notch into the side casing so 
that it will fit over the sill. Note: Length of side casings as 
furnished (7'-tf3/ 16 ") are for use with extension jambs. 
When no X jamb, cut to 7'-7 l / 2 ". (Do not cut off 8'-4%" 
end pieces.) 



3. Place the end pieces (8'-4%" x 27/ 16 " x ll/ 16 ") as fol- 
lows. Butt these pieces against the ends of the head casing, 
keeping them plumb with fhe side casings. The bottom 
ends should be 7" below a point level with the top of the 
sill, back at the door opening, and will line with side casings 
if note above has been followed. 

4. Nail the pilaster bases on the casings and end pieces, 
butting them against fhe ends of the sill and even with the 
bottom of fhe end pieces <7" below the fop of the sill). 
Place the pilaster shafts (cut 6'-10 11 /i 6 ") on top of the 
pilaster bases, and nail to the side casing and end piece, 
fluted or plain side of pilaster shaft out as desired. The 
pilaster caps can now be fastened on top of the pilasters. 

5. Place fhe entrance head on fop of the pilaster caps, lining 
the outside edges with the outside edges of the pilasters. 








This illustration shows how a Bilt- 
Well Entrance is installed in a 
Brick-Veneered or Solid Masonry 
wall. Between the jambs and the 
casings add an extension jamb in- 
dicated by an "x" and a hanging 
stile "*". Follow instructions 1 and 
2 except set head and side casing 
3 /l6" reveal from face of exten- 
sion jamb and proceed with in- 
structions 3, 4, and 5. Pilasters will 
remain l 11 /]^" from outside edge 
of End Piece. 



When the platform is to be less 
than 7" from a point level with 
the top of the sill, cut off the length 
of casings and pilaster bases as 
much as this measurement is less 
than 7".

EXCEPTIONS 



For a 3'-0" x 6'-8" door opening, follow the instructions 
for a 3'-0" x 7'-0" door opening, EXCEPT cut 4" off the 
length of all the vertical pieces— Side Casings, End Pieces, 
and Pilaster Shafts. 

For a 2'-8" x 6'-8" door opening, follow the instructions 
for a 3'-0" x 7'-0" door opening, EXCEPT cut 2" off the 
length of all vertical pieces— Side Casings, End Pieces, 
and Pilaster Shafts. 



Place a (2" x .%«) filler strip 
around the door opening, leaving 
a y 2 " reveal and apply a l /g round 
moulding over the joint. 

Note: In reducing door opening 
width in frame, do not shorten sill 
length (3'-2%") on outside. 





PACKAGED 
HEADS 



An instruction sheet to guide 
the carpenter when assembling 
the Entrance on the job is en- 
closed in each carton containing 
the base section. These sheets 
clearly describe, step by step, 
the process of installation. 



DUST-PROOF CARTONS 

FOR PROTECTION OF 

HEADS AND BASES 

Bilt-Well Entrances are furnished K.D. 
semi-assembled, and each Entrance is 
packed with the head separate from the 
base section. This is done to simplify fill- 
ing orders from warehouse stock. When 
the frame is ordered with the Entrances, 
the jambs and the oak sill are K.D. Bun- 
dled and Strap Banded.

HEADS ARE INTERCHANGEABLE 

All six of these heads fit one standardized base. This 
means a big reduction in stock, yet actually a wider 
assortment than usual. 

ADJUSTABLE DOORWAYS 

A simple method for adjusting the door opening from 
3'-0" x 7'-0" to 2'-8" x 6'-8", with the single exception 
of the 2'-8" x 7'-0" size, all from one stock. The entrance 
is fitted to the door opening of the frame by simply cut- 
ting off the pilasters and side casings. For example, to 
change from 3'-0" x 7'-0" to 3'-0" x 6'-8", the cut-off of 
these members is 4". The entrance is installed directly 
over the edge of the jambs of the frame, allowing Vi f 
reveal. Although the door opening can be a number of 
sizes, nevertheless the over-all dimensions of the head and 
Standardized Base remain the same on all six designs.

REVERSIBLE PILASTERS 

As shown above, the pilasters of a Bilt-Well Entrance are man- 
ufactured with one side fluted and other side plain. They can 
be placed on the entrance showing either the plain or the 
fluted side, thus providing additional flexibility in varying the 
appearance of stock entrances— a Bilt-Well feature that elim- 
inates the necessity of carrying double stock. 

STANDARDIZED JAMBS 

At the right we show how one standard jamb is adjustable 
for any type of construction: 

1. In frame walls. 

2. In stucco. 

3. In brick-veneered. 

4. In solid masonry. 

The addition of extension jambs is necessary for brick- 
veneered and solid masonry walls. Flexibility which means 
economy for you!

After the door jambs and sill are installed, place the head casing 
over the head jamb allowing a V% u reveal and center same. 

Place the two side casings, which measure 7 / -8 3/ 16 " x5 7/i6" 
xlW'r over the side jambs allowing a %" reveal at the 
side and butt them against head casing. Cut a "bevel-notch" 
into the casing so that it will fit over the sill. The bottom ends 
should be 7" below a point level with the top of the sill, back 
at the door opening. NOTE: When the platform is to be less than 
7" from a point level with the top of the sill, cut off the length 
of the pilaster, side casing and end piece as much as this 
measurement is less than 7". 

Take the end pieces measuring 8'-10%"x 4 3 /i6 /i xlV8 i/ and 
butt these against the ends of the head casing lining them up 
with the bottom of the side casings. Keep these parallel with 
the side casings. 

Place the pilaster base even with the bottom edge of the side 
casings and 2V% U from the outside edge of the end piece. Take 
the pilaster shaft and fasten to the casing and end piece, leaving 
a 3 3 /a" margin from the outside edge. Turn the fluted or plain 
side of the pilaster out by referring to the illustrations of en- 
trance designs. Pilaster caps can now be installed. 

The entrance head should be placed on pilaster caps and the 
ends should line up with the outside edge of the pilasters. 

Apply the moulding on the surface of the casing, cutting it to 
length for IV2" margin from the inside edge of the side and 
head casings. 

EXCEPTIONS 

For 3-0" x 6-8" Door Opening 

Follow the above instructions for a 3'-0" x 7'-0" door opening EXCEPT CUT OFF 4" in the 
length of all vertical pieces— side casings, end pieces, pilaster shafts and ornamental 
moulding. 

For 2-8" x 6-8" Door Opening 

Carry out the instructions for a 3'-0" x 7'-0" door opening with the following exceptions: 

Place a (2" x l!/ 8 ") filler strip around the door opening on the jambs, allowing a W 
reveal. In reducing door width in frame, leave sill lug on outside at least 3'/i" past face 
of jamb to receive mould. 

Cut off 2" in the length of all vertical pieces— side casings, end pieces, pilaster shafts and 
ornamental moulding. Apply moulding over [oint between casings and filler strips. 
NOTICE! Wood sill is omitted on all entrances used in building of brick-veneered or solid 
masonry.

This method of individually packing Heads and Standardized 
Base is a decided advantage over packing each Entrance com- 
plete in one package. It enables the ordering of any particular 
one of the six heads without necessarily ordering the same 
number of Standardized Bases. As a consequence, it reduces 
inventories, insures a faster turnover, and saves warehouse 
space. Jambs and sill of frame when specified with the En- 
trance are in a separate bundle. 




The "Superior" Window has many exclusive 
features beyond the usual features of today's 
scientifically designed windows. With these 
additional, practical, exclusive features the 
"Superior' 9 Window is an advanced improve- 
ment in window construction designed to cut 
building costs. The "Superior" Window with its 
engineered construction and mass production 
methods provides "Superior" quality at low cost. 




Copyright 1946 





"Superior" Windows will not stick, leak or rattle 
— weather cannot affect their efficiency. The 
weatherstrip is especially designed for the 
Superior Window and this allows for possible 
shrinking or swelling of the sash. The appear- 
ance and fine craftsmanship are predominant 
features in the Superior Window. Tasteful de- 
sign, the result of years of research and ex- 
perience, marks every Superior Window. Plan 
now to include Superior Windows in your home- 
building plans.

The blind stop and wind break (that part which extends 
beyond the frame) overlaps the header, thus forming a 
weather-tight seal between frame and building. This also 
provides ample nailing surface to securely anchor the 
frame to the building. The tongue on the edge of the top 
sash, which is in addition to the weatherstrip, gives extra 
protection against cold drafts.

Superior Windows are perfectly counter-balanced at all 
points with overhead spring balances, that are guaran- 
teed for the life of the building. The uniform tension of 
the spring balances eliminates rattling and vibration 
when either sash is raised or lowered. The tape hooks on 
the sash with a simple ring and hook attachment. 



Sash can be installed or removed easily and quickly 
without loosening or removing any of the weatherstrip. 
The illustration on the opposite page shows how sash is 
removed by pressing the spring weatherstrip. The 
Superior is the only counter-balanced and completely 
weatherstripped unit, the sash of which can be removed 
without loosening the weatherstrip. 



All parts are chemically treated with Permatol A, a spe- 
cial toxic treatment to retard moisture absorption and to 
protect against wood-destroying fungi. The wood is thor- 
oughly kiln dried to start with, consequently this toxic 
treatment done at the factory protects the wood before 
it is subjected to atmospheric conditions. 




<s 



A patented weatherstrip is the outstanding feature of the 
Superior Window. It is a cushion-type, jamb liner weather- 
strip, nailless and flexible. It is applied at the factory, 
because the sash can be installed or removed at any time 
without removing the weatherstrip. It automatically com- 
pensates for all possible swelling or shrinking of the 
sash in width or thickness. 



D 



Across the bottom edge of the sash and the check rail a 
spring weatherstrip is installed the full width of the 
opening. This forms a weather-tight seal between the 
sill and the sash. The pitch of the sill is steep to insure 
rapid drainage and the thickness (1%") insures long 
durability. 




Sash may be removed easily and quickly with- 
out loosening or removing the weatherstrip. 



Light, snug contact between sash and weather- 
strip at all times, no stick, no dust, no draft. 




Easy sliding the year around. Swelling or shrink- 
ing will not affect the smooth weather-tight 
operation. 



Perfect counter-balancing at all points. Win- 
dows stay in any position. Balances guaran- 
teed for the life of the building.

VERTICAL SECTION THRU BAY 




The frames of Superior Units are 
packed in three bundles at the fac- 
tory — the vertical parts, the hori- 
zontal parts, and the rnullion parts 
are bundled separately. 



ARE EASY TO ASSEMBLE 



Here are the various parts of the Superior 
Window being assembled from the above 
bundles. This is so simple, and the parts 
are so accurately machined to fit perfectly 
that a hammer is the only tool required to 
assemble a Superior Frame. The weather- 
strip is always applied at the factory, 
and only a few minutes were required from 
the time the strap band on the frame 
bundle was cut until the frame was com- 
pletely assembled. The ease in which 
Superior Units are completely assembled 
is the paramount feature. 



The side jambs are grooved to re- 
ceive the horizontal parts, thus the 
positions of these parts are auto- 
matically located. This tongue and 
groove construction provides a 
sturdy weather-tight frame. 



A tongue on the edge of the pulley 
stile automatically locates the posi- 
tion of the blind stop and wind 
break. The pulley stiles are machined 
from V/z" lumber, therefore, there 
is plenty of nailing surface.

Superior Frames are also easy 
to install. It is just a lapse of 
several minutes and the instal- 
lation is finished. Several win- 
dow openings can be com- 
pleted in one hour, because 
there is no cutting or trim- 
ming necessary on the frame if 
the rough opening is the proper 
size, plumb, and square. 



Superior Frames have a wide 
overlapping "blind stop" and 
"wind break" so nailing and 
anchoring is greatly simplified. 
With this wide overlapping 
wind break a weather-tight, 
wind-proof installation can ac- 
tually be accomplished— build- 
ing paper can be installed in 
the most effective way when 
the frames are "Superior." 



Superior Sash can be inserted 
in less than a minute— an ex- 
cellent feature for all times, 
because not all new houses are 
equipped with storm sash, and 
closing in the partly constructed 
building is easy with Superior 
Unit Windows. If it is desired, 
the sash can be removed while 
plaster is being applied, and 
they can be repeatedly removed 
and installed without damage 
to the weatherstrip.

SUMMARY OF BILT-WELL CLGS-TITE CASEMENT SIZES 



These are the standard sizes and glass arrange- 
ments of Bilt-Well Clos-tite Casements. These have 
been selected for all practical purposes and meet 
the requirements of standard Building practice. The 
measurements are the stud and brick opening. 

Sash are hinged to swing out. One or more sash in 
multiple openings may be stationary. Also, in mul- 



tiple openings sash can be hinged to swing right or 
left, in which case be sure to specify how sash shall 
swing (from outside) when ordering. 

When framing opening for Casements to line up 
with top of door, place rough header l, 9 / 16 " plus 
the finished door height.

will add beauty to the appearance of any home by offsetting the severity of the usual square 
lines of the exterior. This added touch of beauty, achieved when a Bilt-Well circle or an 
octagon sash is incorporated into the design, gives not only a pleasing effect but also many 
practical benefits. 

For example, natural light can be provided in lavatories, halls, closets, and attics with a Bilt- 
Well circle or an octagon sash; whereas, it is frequently found that a regular double hung window 
is too large for the amount of outside wall surface. The elimination of these dark areas lessens 
the possibility of moths, etc., and certainly offers the advantage of providing desirable daylight.

Bilt-Well Louvres are essential, particularly when insulation is used. In winter, ventilation in the 
attic is a "must" to eliminate condensation, thus increasing the effectiveness of the insulation by 
keeping it dry. In the summer, cross ventilation is vitally essential to reduce high temperature in 
attic and heat penetration into living areas. This "adds up" to greater all-year-round comfort with 
the use of Bilt-Well Louvres.

STORM DOOR in Winter and SCREEN DOOR in Summer 





A Bilt-Well Combination Door is 
really two doors in one ... a storm 
door in winter and a screen door in 
summer at much less cost than both 
a screen door and a storm door . . . 
and it is far more convenient! To 
change the door from a screen door to a storm door, 
simply turn the fasteners and replace the Screen with 
the storm panel. This requires very little effort and 
time. 

Great care exercised in the designing, manufactur- 



ing, and assembling, of Bilt-Well Combination Storm 
and Screen Doors results in a better product without 
extra cost. The screen and the storm panels fit into the 
door and are so joined that they prevent any leakage 
of air or water. Every part is care- 
fully made to eliminate the possibil- 
ity of draft. A convenient metal 
fastener holds the panel in place, 
and this can be adjusted to draw 
the storm or screen panel tightly 
into position.

weather the heat goes out and the cold

ing the furnace every minute of the 
day and night. 

The air space created between the 
outside door and the room door pro- 
vides real insulation, keeping the heat 
in and the wintry winds out. Every 
outside entrance should be equipped 
with a Bilt-Well Combination Door 
to keep out the cold air, eliminate

BILT-WELL 
STORM SASH 

pay for themselves 
in fuel savings 

While Bilt-Well Storm Sash are not 
new, some recent experiments indicate 
their full value and effectiveness have 
not heretofore been entirely under- 
stood. Based on these new findings, 
here are the answers to a variety of 
questions on just what Bilt-Well Storm 
Sash installation will accomplish. First, 
they reduce the amount of cold air 
leaking into a house or apartment, and 
by actual tests a fuel saving of 20% 
has been achieved by installing Bilt- 
Well Storm Sash. A window that is 
poorly fitted and without weatherstrip 
will admit 110 cubic feet of air by leak- 
age each hour for every foot length of 
crack. With storm sash this leakage is 
reduced to 5 5 cubic feet. 



One of the most interesting things 
about the use of Bilt-Well Storm 
Sash is the way it increases the tem- 
perature of window glass, reducing 
heat loss in the room thus materially 
increasing the comfort of the occu- 
pants. 

During zero weather, for instance, 
ordinary single window glass will 
be 18°. Where storm sash is used 
this window glass will be 41°. The 
difference in the temperature of the 
glass has a direct bearing on physi- 
cal comfort because there is a cor- 
respondingly greater loss of body 
heat drawn to the colder glass. 

Further, troublesome, hard-to-clean, 
frost formations and moisture fog- 
ging are greatly reduced, if not 
eliminated entirely, by the addition 
of Bilt-Well Storm Sash. They will 
also reduce the amount of soot and 
dirt entering the home or apartment.

BUT-WELL

POORS 



Many diseases are contracted because of germ carrying insects — 
perhaps more than from all other known causes. Flies and mos- 
quitos are known to carry infectious germs and every effort 
should be made to exclude these dangerous "pests" from homes. 
Fly paper and "swatters" kill the individual fly or mosquito, but 
insects multiply far too rapidly for such methods to check the 
danger. Consequently, the only means of minimizing the "pests" 
is the application of Bilt-Well Screen Doors and Window Screens. 

Besides being more attractive and "streamlined," Bilt-Well Screens

APPLICATION OF 

WIRE CLOTH 

In the manufacturing of Bilt Well Screens 
the wood frame is grooved and the wire 
cloth is pressed into this groove by a 
mechanical operation. Tests for strength 
and durability reveal that this is far su- 
perior to stapling the wire cloth to the 
wood frame. 



Specialists in the construction of 
Window Screens and Screen Doors 
are busy the year around produc- 
ing Bilt-Well Screens. Actually the 
work of these skilled men reflects 
the precise workmanship result- 
ing from uninterrupted, continu- 
ous practice. Their work is light, 
clean and interesting; the work 
room is modern and the equip- 
ment is up-to-date. All this is im- 
portant and a definite relationship 
can be detected in the fine product 
which they produce.

CARR-DOR 

Overhead 

Garage 

Doors 




ATTRACTIVE 



The Carr-dor is made in two attractive de- 
signs adaptable to attached or detached 
garages. Architects, Realtors, and Builders 
highly approve these attractive designs and 
they tell us the Carr-dor adds to the sale- 
ability of homes. Building Contractors like 
the ease of installation and find the Carr- 
dor suitable for any project because it only 
requires IW of clearance at the fop and 
only 2 " at sides. 



SNOW-PROOF 



The Carr-dor, like a dependable car, oper- 
ates properly at all times, in all kinds of 
weather. Snow will not hamper opening 
and closing a Carr-dor because it is over- 
head acting. The easy, smooth action and 
positive closing of the Carr-dor for a Car 
Owner is comparable to the "Self Starter" 
on his automobile— both are easy to oper- 
ate and convenient. 



WIND-PROOF 



The Carr-dor when open is completely in- 
side. There is absolutely no danger of the 
Carr-dor closing or slamming from wind 
pressure. Wind has no effect on the oper- 
ation of the Carr-dor. When closed, the lock 
catches both sides of the Carr-dor— holds 
the door from rattling. When open, the 
Carr-dor is out of the wind. 



2 
K 




EASY TO OPE 



The Carr-dor eliminates the tugging and 
pushing that is necessary with ordinary 
garage doors. A light touch and the door 
slides up and overhead— by itself— and 
stays there. The Carr-dor is equipped with 
ball-bearing rollers and straight channel 
track, which makes it operate with unusual 
ease. 



EASY TO CLOSE 



With a Carr-dor it takes such little effort 
to put your automobile in the garage. You 
won't dread operating the garage door, 
not if it is a Carr-dor, because it operates 
with finger-touch control. Easy opening, 
positive closing, and perfect balancing are 
practical features of the Carr-dor. 



BUILT TO LAST 



It's the "Ups and Downs" that count in the 
life of a Garage Door. The Carr-dor is op- 
erated and controlled by expertly engi- 
neered hardware with high carbon steel 
normalized operating arm and specially 
tempered, oil treated, individually tested 
springs with adjustments. The Carr-dor is 
trouble free— with its simplicity in con- 
struction and operation there is nothing to 
get out of order.

dows in the walls and 
with plenty of daylight 
select BW-3245.

BV/-3247 



Garages in basements generally lack sufficient daylight and for that 
reason glass instead of wood panels are practical in design BW-3247. 
The divisions in the glass may be varied by removing the vertical 
muntins. This is important only when the garage is a part of the house, 
and it is desired to have the divisions in the Carr-dor similar to windows 
and doors of your home.

INSTALLING A CARR-DOR IS AS 
EASY AS IT LOOKS ••• EVERY 
PIECE OF HARDWARE FITS AND 
EACH PART IS READILY LOCATED 

You don't need a rule to measure distances 
to locate the hardware. The weatherstrip 
plates are stamped to automatically establish 
projections. Other parts are located by fol- 
lowing up the applications of parts in con- 
secutive order. For instance, the arm and 
spring assembly is placed directly under the 
top weatherstrip plate; and below the angle 
iron the bottom weatherstrip is installed. In 
much the same way the arm brackets are 
located on the door. Please read the following 
references to the photographic reproductions 
on these pages and visualize for yourself the 
simplicity and ease with which a Carr-dor can 
be installed in your garage. 




The Carr-dor is furnished in two sections and wl 
assembled the size is 7'-\VM" x 6-11 \ This is 
pre-fit size and is the proper allowance for an 8' > 
opening in the garage. The above illustration she

The bottom weatherstrip is now being attached directly 
under the arm and spring assembly. This also projects

placing of one part is governed by the other in the 

6 smooth flowing installation.

In this illustration the tracks are being hung by f 
placing the track over the roller which is attached to

hand are furnished and a bracket is formed on e< 
side to brace the track. 




gie roller brackets and the upper weatherstrip having

|id wedged. From here on all the attaching of hard- 
ware is done from inside. It is not necessary to have 
my other means of access to the garage while attach- 
gg the hardware. 




The angle iron of arm and spring assembly is being 
applied to the jambs allowing it to project %" into the 
opening and directly under the upper weatherstrip. On 
the left the bolts are attached to the arm assembly at 
the bottom of the door. 




|e wedges may now be removed and the door 
pened. The spring is being attached by hooking over 
% head of the bolts in the angle iron of the arm and 
jying assembly. 



The installation being completed with exception of a 
few items to be attached, the hand strap, spring bolt 
catches, and locking handle are now being placed. A

methods and highly skilled 
workmanship that go into 
producing a fine product*

5* Here all the door parts are 
about to be assembled by 
placing them in a huge clamp. 
Glue has just been applied to 
the giant dowels and the clamp 
is set into motion. The dowels 
will enter the dowel holes in 
the stiles and after the proper 
pressure is exerted the assem- 
bly will then be complete.

7. Each door is now carefully 
inspected and the necessary 
"touch-up" is done immedi- 
ately. All parts are carefully 
handled in the processing; 
thus little or no "touch-up" 
is necessary.

Presdwood Panels 




■Silt- Well Doors with Masonite S2S Tempered Presdwood 
Panels have been on the market for several years. The 
thousands of doors sold in the interim have proved 
Masonite S2S Tempered Presdwood an ideal panel for a 
door because . . . 

... of its excellent surface, and adherent quality for 
paint and enamel; 

... its hard, smooth surface, which by its special process 
of manufacture, will not check, nor will its fibers raise. 

These various advantages claimed at the time of the 
introduction of Bilt-Well Doors with Masonite S2S Tempered 
Presdwood Panels have been fully substantiated. 

This attractive door is being furnished with 5 

Ponderosa Pine stiles and rails and Masonite \ 

S2S Tempered Presdwood Panels. \

advantage found only in some higher priced 
hardwood panels. Most woodwork in the 
home today is enameled, and this is one of 
the principal reasons Bilt-Well Doors with 
Masonite S2S Tempered Presdwood Panels 
are the logical choice for today's modern

SCIENTIFICALLY PRODUCED 
TO SERVE WELL— LONGER 



Bilt-Well Doors are carefully machined, sturdily 
constructed, and assembled under hydraulic pres- 
sure. Corners are jointed with heavy Vt f diameter 
spiral glue cell dowels with a high water-resistant 
glue. 

Over eighty years of manufacturing "know how" 
has contributed to better door making. 

The opportunity for decorative effects on Masonite 
Presdwood Panels of Bilt-Well Doors in unlimited. 
There are a variety of effects that can be accom- 
plished. One is to stain the wood parts and enamel 
the panels. Another is to stain the wood parts to 
match the color of the Masonite Presdwood Panels, 
producing a color similar to walnut. Any of these 
decorative ideas can easily be accomplished at a 
low cost. 

*The Masonite S2S Tempered Presdwood Panel 
is a 100% wood product, manufactured entirely of 
exploded wood fiber. The process starts by explod- 
ing clean wood chips into ligno-cellulose fiber under 
high pressure steam without either damaging the 
cellulose fiber or removing the lignin, which is 
nature's binding agent in the tree. The exploding 
process is a physical separation of the fiber, no 
chemicals being used. 

The ligno-cellulose fiber, which can be controlled 
in varying degrees of plasticity, is felted and pressed 
into board form in flatbed heated hydraulic presses 
under different heats and pressures. No binder is 
added, the lignin being utilized to weld the fiber 
together. 

Remember Masonite S2S Tempered Presdwood 
Panel is a 100% wood product. 

*Masonite S2S Tempered Presdwood is the product of 
Masonite Corporation, Chicago, Illinois 



BILT-WELL CUPBOARD DOORS 

Bilt-Well Cupboard Doors with Mason- 
ite S2S Tempered Presdwood Panels,

U-STYLE CABINETS... 

set new styles in kitchen beauty 



By utilizing the basic elements of design and applying them to the 
problems of time and labor saving, along with working area and 
storage requirements, our expert designers have, in Nu-Style 
Kitchen Cabinets, been able to achieve a unique success in combin- 
ing the practical with the beautiful. Their sheer simple lines have 
created a new trend in kitchen cabinet designing, not only because 
the "streamlining" enhances the decorative effect, but because it 
eliminates many undesirable features previously common in the 
surface appearance of most kitchen cabinets. The smooth, sleek 
surfaces make cleaning an easy matter. The cabinets are made of 
specially treated Ponderosa Pine, adding greatly to the usefulness 
and the lasting qualities of these cabinets.

designers. Such features as the 
easy-to-reach door and drawer 
handles which eliminate stooping 
and stretching; and the introduc- 
tion of functional styling in cabi- 
nets with the smooth, flush effect 
of the drawers and the doors. 
These are but a few of the many 
fine features to be found in Nu- 
Style Cabinets that can only be 
appreciated in actual use. 

The proper selection and arrange- 
ment of the individual basic units, 
each supplied in a variety of sizes, 
provide the solution to any 
kitchen planning problem. Each 
unit contains an abundance of 
cupboard space along with con- 
venient work areas. Streamline 
styling blends perfectly with the 
new kitchen ranges and refriger- 
ators. Being made of Ponderosa 
Pine assures ease of installation 
and long life for the cabinets.

Large kitchens or small, remodeled or newly built, of simple or irregular shape 
become a model for beauty if Nu-Style Cabinet units are installed. 



UNITS TO FIT 

any space or need or taste 

Bilt-Well has an excellent method of furnishing Nu-Style 
Cabinets. It is an assembly of sectional units grouped side by 
side— as many or few as needed to accomplish the desired 
arrangement. Each unit is self-contained, but becomes an 
integral part of the completed assembly. The units are in 
graduated sizes, making it simple and easy to fit any space, 
need, or taste. 




DOVETAILED 
DRAWER FRONTS 

The dovetail can only be 
seen from the bottom — 
doesn't come up through the 
top — where it would detract 
from appearance.

You can adopt these arrangements or plan others. Nu-Style Cabinets offer 
hundreds oj faultless kitchens. 

| QUICKLY AND EASILY INSTALLED 

The installation of Nu-Style Kitchen Cabinets involves a minimum 
of time and labor. The upper cabinets are anchored (to the wall in 
a hanging manner) with screws through the back into the wall. 
The lower cabinets are placed on a built-up base and if desired the 
counter height can be raised or lowered simply by adjusting the 
height of the auxiliary base. This base is usually built of 1" x 4" 
lumber at the job and is recessed three inches to provide toe space. 
The counter top is generally covered with linoleum; also, we do 
not supply built-in upholstery seat shown. Your building material 
dealer will gladly discuss with you this part of the installation. 
Every step in the installation of Nu-Style Cabinets will be quickly 
and easily accomplished.

you have Nu-Style Kitchen 
Cabinets. There is a place for 
everything.

Color can be the "magic formula" to transform the kitchen into something brilliant, 
soft and quiet, or sparkling and dramatic, depending on your own individual taste. 



KITCHEN UTILITY AND CONVENIENCE 

The outstanding designers who created the smart styling of Nu-Style 
Cabinets also contributed to the many convenient features which are ex- 
clusive with them. The problems having to do with kitchen efficiency and 
step-saving for the housewife, the problem of easy cabinet installation and 
of long trouble-free wear were all analyzed and considered when these 
cabinets were designed. Thus Nu-Style Cabinets incorporate beauty at its 
best, convenience at its peak, and quality at its finest, all at minimum cost. 
We do not supply the built-in upholstery seat illustrated. Your lumber 
dealer will obtain this elsewhere for you. 




Is your kitchen "L" Shape? Then, here is the 
solution for arranging Bilt-Well Nu-Style 
Kitchen Cabinets. 



EASILY 
ADAPTED 

to fit any size 

or shape of

It's simple if your kitchen is square. The 
white lines on the floor indicate additional 
cabinets. 



Nu-Style Cabinets on three walls makes a 
compact, convenient kitchen . . . Every- 
thing within reach. 




A rectangular kitchen makes an excellent 
layout when Nu-Style Cabinets are in- 
stalled on the two long walls.

attractive arrangement.

DOOR CATCH 

It isn't necessary to slam the 
door with this positive door 
catch. And, with one finger the 
catch is released. 




COLOR AS YOU LIKE IT... 



With the decorative trend in kitchens toward a choice of colors to reflect the per- 
sonality of the housewife, the selection of the color scheme becomes a matter of 
individual taste. The cabinets, walls, floors, and ceilings, along with movable kitchen 
accessories, must all be considered as units of the completed color plan. All can be 
successfully worked together for the desired effect, anything from quiet harmony to 
vivid contrast. Nu-Style Kitchen Cabinets because of their pleasing proportions and 
their machine-smooth surfaces are particularly adaptable to color treatment. 



CHANGE COLOR SCHEMES WHEN DESIRED 



i 



Bilt-Well Nu-Style Kitchen Cabinets offer flexibility in changing the color scheme 
to keep abreast with the trend of decorating, because they are of the basic material 
—"wood." You may like white gleaming kitchen cabinets today; however, in time 
to come the vogue in kitchen colors may suggest the cabinets in some other color. 
It is easy when you have wood cabinets. Your painter simply prepares the cabinets 
for refinishing and the color of your choice is applied.

The above is an example showing how to arrive at the necessary information which will enable you to plan your kitche 
for the utmost in Beauty, Efficiency, and work saving. Measure your kitchen carefully, and on the ruled space on th 
next page draw a plan of it, starting from any corner of the room and continuing around the entire room, showin 
location of windows and doors and their dimensions, including all casings and trim. Show where the doors lead, as 1 
Dining Room, Hall, or Outside. Give the sizes of Range, Refrigerator and Sink. 

In planning cabinets under windows remember that lower units are 2'-6 1/2" high exclusive of toe- space which i 
usually 3'- 5/ 8" high, and thickness of ledge. Don't put cabinets in front of warm air registers. Since the cabinets ar 
made of wood they can sometimes be fitted around pipes, ducts and other minor obstructions without too much trouble 
See your plumber for sink information.

Sliding doors ... a feature of Gli-dor Cabinets. Ji 
slide the doors to an open position and proceed in preparing 

food to serve. If a plate, platter, or a dish is needed, it is 
there before you on the shelves. When the meal 
has been served, dishes washed and stacked, just slide 
the doors closed and the shelves are concealed. And— how 
wonderfully convenient this all is with Gli-dor Cabinets. 






VEGETABLE BIN 

Convenient vegetable storage 
bins for lower units. 



It's a pleasure to work in a convenient kitchen and 
with Gli-dor Cabinets you can arrange the units to conform 

with your individual needs. The various units in which

Ample depth for storing cooking utensils is provided 
Knowing the importance of making kitchen cabinets with 
deep storage space, Bilt-Well Designers placed this at 

the top of their list when setting out to design Gli-dor 
Cabinets. The base (lower) cabinets are 23 1 /i" deep 
with a shelf. The work top is (24") spacious with plenty of 
depth. And, the drawers are 4" deep, just the right depth— 
not too deep and not too shallow. The upper 
cabinets are (I2 1 /s") deep enough for large dinner plates, and 
will take a serving dish or platter standing on edge.

The manufacture of a Bilt-Well 
Ironing Board Cabinet involves 
many operations, each a master- 
ful task in itself. Every operation 
is performed with utmost care and 
in the assembling all parts must 
fit properly, glide easily, and pass 
strict inspection before being 
packed for shipment. 

When it comes to comparing 
with other "Boards" for conven- 
ience, utility, and accessibility it's 
Bilt-Well Ironing Boards every- 
time.

Bilt-Well Mantels are shipped from the factory with 
the above pieces packed in the carton illustrated 
below. This is called the K. D. Semi-assembled 
Method of furnishing Bilt-Well Mantels to you. 
Most of these parts are prefitted and assembled; 
however, some moulds are furnished longer than 
required so that a perfect fit can be made. Inas- 
much as, there is always some variation in the 
existing work, the provision for fitting is a good 
feature. The above is Mantel BW-3650, and the 
other designs of Bilt-Well Mantels are furnished 
much in the same way. This is a typical illustra- 
tion of how they all are furnished. 





Bilt-Well Mantels are packed in a strong corrugated 
paper carton like that illustrated above. The fine 
workmanship and the high quality woodwork are 
protected from damage while being shipped to 
you by this carton. All the laps in the carton are 
sealed to prevent dust and grit from filtering into 
the carton. Bilt-Well Mantels come to you "spot- 
lessly clean" as the result of these precautions. 

J_ 
Q 



When you build a fireplace in your 
home, you expect it to be of real 
service and comfort. Yet if it 
smokes, it cannot be used. We 
really have nothing to do with 
the construction of the fireplace, 
but we do feel that we can be of 
real service to you by offering 
the following information which 
can be followed whether you 
build just an ordinary fireplace or 
decide on having a manufactured 
steel heating accessory built into 
your fireplace. While these are 
technical details, the illustrations 
are understood by those that you 
will entrust with the work of 
building your fireplace. By fol- 
lowing these details many of the 
mistakes resulting in a faulty 
fireplace can be avoided. 

We manufacture only the wood 
mantel.

This is the standard way to construct a tire- 
place including a smoke shelf, a tapered 
throat, and a damper to regulate the draft. 
Keep all wood framing two inches away 
from the brick which frames this fireplace. 
Fill space around fireplace with a non-com- 
bustible insulation. 



This method of fireplace construction pro- 
vides warmth from the fire by circulating the 
air of the room. In a single compact unit 
made of steel there is included the firebox, 
throat, damper, downdraft shelf, and smoke 
dome. This steel unit is a form for the ma- 
sonry and eliminates all guesswork com- 
mon in fireplace failures. Again we wish to 
mention that we have nothing to do with 
the furnishing of this unit. We furnish only 
the wood mantel. See your local lumber 
dealer for these steel heating units.

Woodwork properly cared for is a joy forever, a source 
of satisfaction, and a constant guardian of home values. 

You have seen a new line of Bilt-Well products; each 
well designed and properly manufactured. 

When Bilt-Well Woodwork leaves our factory, it is 
thoroughly kiln-dried to a relative moisture content which 
is considered ideal for all painting purposes. It is, there- 
fore, recommended that you give it the care it deserves, 
that you do not store it in a damp place, especially not in 
freshly-plastered buildings. As soon as possible after 
receiving Bilt-Well Products a prime coat or a base coat 
should be applied to seal the surfaces, including all edges 
and ends. 






If by chance the woodwork has been exposed to mois- 
ture, it is advisable to dry it out thoroughly before giving 
it any of the above preparations. To insure that you get 
the maximum satisfaction from Bilt-Well Woodwork it is 
recommended that these few precautionary steps be taken.
